I've got this code for a dynamic optionsetfield:
$people = Dataobject::get("myFourth");
$map = $people->toDropDownMap();
$fields->push( new OptionsetField(
$name = "PersonSelectedID",
$title = "Select person",
$source = $map,
I want to use a column in the database to populate the form label, otherwise I just get an automated one which retrieves the ID of the dataobject.
Any ideas on how I can achieve this?

If you have a look at the API Documentation you'll see that the toDropdownMap method takes the following optional arguments:
string $index - The field to use as a key for the array
string $titleField - The field (or method) to get values for the map
string $emptyString - Empty option text e.g "(Select one)"
bool $sort - Sort the map alphabetically based on the $titleField value
So you can do:
$map = $people->toDropDownMap('ID', 'SomeOtherColumn');
